Long Beach Jr Concert Band

The Long Beach Junior Concert Band was organized in 1952 by director Marvin Marker. LBJCB is the "Official Host Youth Band" for the City of Long Beach. This award winning group is composed of dedicated individuals ages of 13 through 21 from Long Beach and surrounding communities. The band has three main sections, the wind musicians (brass and woodwinds), the syncopated drum section (percussion), and the Pageantry Corps (tall flags and dancers). LBJCB is a California Non-Profit Corporation and remains active through the efforts of band members, staff, and parents with monthly dues, fund raising activities and voluntary support. The band has made several TV and movie appearances over the years and has traveled extensively throughout the Western United States, Hawaii, and in 1997 went on an international tour of Japan. LBJCB performs throughout the year at several competitive and televised holiday parades, numerous local shows, and other civic events.
